DIY Valentine Garland

Good morning everyone! I hope that everyone is enjoying their week. Apparently, there is a cold front that is affecting most of the United States. Here in Georgia, it is pretty cold, and we're expecting snow today or tomorrow- fingers crossed.- Today, I will be sharing a do it yourself tutorial for making Valentine garland.


DIY Valentine Garland

I bought some heart decorations at the dollar store and was pleasantly surprised to find that I could use them in several projects. That was a dollar well spent! 

I knew that I wanted some type of Valentine garland, but I wasn't sure how I was going to actually construct this garland. Finally, last night I came up with this idea to simply connect all of the larger decorative hearts using connector rings. The connector rings are most commonly used in jewelry making, and luckily I had more than enough stashed away for this project.

Here's how to make the Valentine garland:

Tools:

  • Lots of large hearts
  • Connector rings
  • Needle Nose Pliers
  • A Piece of Wire

Directions:

  1. Poke holes in the far end of each hearts using the piece of wire.
  2. Open the connector rings with the needle nose pliers.
  3. Connect the hearts together, and close each consecutive connector ring.
  4. Hang up and enjoy!


Its simple, cute, and festive!
This garland seriously only took about 30 minutes to make, but it looks so darn cute! I'm considering keeping it up year round to add some festive, glitterness to my life!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Krissa! This garland is so easy to make... I'm a little embarrassed to say that it took me a day or two to come up with it. I was originally wanting to use ribbons, but I figured that it may not turn out as good. I like to keep things simple!
